Chelsea hero Joe Cole has hailed the speed of young winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.

According to Cole, it’s difficult to keep up with the pace of the young winger.

“I actually trained with Callum when I was coming back from America. He actually stood me up a couple of times!” Coe said as quoted by hitc.com.

“You can’t catch him, with that pace and power, there’s nothing you can do. He’s a great player. He can get even better.”

Meanwhile, Cole has urged West Ham United to sign Hudson-Odoi in the on-going summer transfer window.

According to reports, the 21-year-old has asked the club to send him on loan, with several clubs including West Ham, Southampton and Leicester City keen on signing the young winger.

Hudson-Odoi missed the last three months of last season due to injury, and was left out Chelsea squad for the game against Everton.

Hudson-Odoi is keen on going out on loan this season to get regular game time.
